    Default Paris 24hr race

    I know the Les 24 Heures de Viry Chatillon 2018 open model boat race is in progress at the moment, and I think it will be ending soon. Unfortunately I dont know anyuone in it this year so have not been getting facebook updates, but I am interested and I know someone here is a competitor, so I am hoping he will post or link to a race report, some photos, videos, descriptions of the boats, etc, any info would be appreciated.

    From the photos boats 6, 64 and 75 all look like the have a safety loop, so I guess they are the FE contingent. if that is right then it looks like electrics came 1st, 3rd and 5th.

    Cool. I am having some reasonable success with my Osprey. The first offshore regatta, 140 mins of racing got me 131 laps. The winner did 157. Another regatta the next day I did 2nd equal for a 20 min race with 37 laps, winner did 41. I had a stop in that one when the boat I equalled with ran over me and pulled my safety loop. Without that stop I may well have won! I am also leading our club series, a 20 min race each club day, and open mono with the same boat. All against gassers that are bigger and have more hp.

    That looks like a lot of fun - and work too. Looks like only 4 boats didn't complete 24hrs.
